Scientific Name: Alocasia baginda 'pink dragon' 
Synonyms: Pink Dragon Elephant Ear, Alocasia Pink dragon, Alocasia Calidora

  • Dark foliage with attractive white veining, and pastel pink petioles
  • Collectors Item
  • Can get large in time (+-2m)
  • Easier than some other Alocasia
  • Plant level: Intermediate

Alocasias like this stand out in a crowd. Featuring large, deep green leaves with attractive, thick white veins. There is a pretty burgundy underside to each leaf, but the pièce de résistance is definitely the variously toned pink stems of this houseplant. Is there anything not to love?

These are definitely some of the easier Alocasia to grow as houseplants and thrive happily indoors if provided with the correct care and attention, creating that much desired tropical look, especially as they grow and get larger, with the ability to reach almost 2m in height. These beauties offer a remarkable depth of colour and will make the ultimate statement plant if placed on their own or will add texture, tone and variation to a perfectly curated plant corner, tabletop or shelf.

Provide your Elephants Ear Pink Dragon houseplant with a warm brightly lit location but be sure not to expose it to direct sunlight as this can damage the glossy textured leaves. This enchanter is also very fond of high humidity, so if you have a warm bright bathroom, this will be a great location. 

Check out our Table Top or Easy Care Plant Collections for additional options.

Make your Elephants Ear Black Velvet standout, with one of these Styling Tips:

  • Consider pairing this beauty with a contemporary Tabletop Planter to allow the leaves to be the main attraction. 
  • Combine with a stunning Metal Plant Stand and Planter to add a little extra height to your indoor plant display.

Follow these instructions to keep your Elephant Ear healthy and happy.

  • Water: Keep soil evenly moist, but not saturated, so ensure that the drainage is good. Reduce watering frequency in winter.
  • Light: Bright, indirect light, however, can tolerate lower lighting. Best kept away from direct sunlight.
  • Humidity: Enjoys a humid environment and good airflow. Normal room humidity should be fine with substituted humidity. Will enjoy a bright bathroom.
  • Fertilize: Diluted balanced feed every two weeks, Spring to Autumn, reducing to monthly in Winter.

Please note: Alocasia are considered toxic to pets and humans when consumed.
